spacer humor > > > vet visit

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. 
As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his 
stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment 
or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm so sorry, 
your pet has passed away." 

The distressed owner wailed, "Are you sure? 

"Yes, I'm sure. The duck is dead," he replied. 

"How can you be so sure", she protested. "I mean, you 
haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might 
just be in a coma or something." 

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. 
He returned a few moments later with a black Labrador 
Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, 
the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on 
the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to 
bottom. He then looked at the vet with sad eyes and 
shook his head. 

The vet patted the dog and took it out and returned a 
few moments later with a beautiful cat. 

The cat jumped up on the table and also sniffed the bird 
from its beak to its tail and back again. The cat sat 
back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly, jumped 
down and strolled out of the room. 

The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but 
as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, 
a dead duck." Then the vet turned to his computer terminal, 
hit a few keys, and produced a bill, which he handed to 
the woman. 

The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150.00!" 
she cried. "$150.00 just to tell me my duck is dead?!!

" The vet shrugged. "I'm sorry. If you'd taken my word 
for it, the bill would have been $20.00. But what with 
the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it all adds up."
